Minori Yamazaki invented this 3D cubic kaleidoscope "CUMOS"
[polyhedral closed box kaleidoscope]
“At first, I was trying to capture the vast cosmos within a tiny box that would fit neatly in my hand. Then, I became fascinated by the mystery of the finiteness and infinity of life.”
While studying at the Tokyo National University of Fine Art and Music, Yamazaki began to create 3-dimensional kaleidoscopes. The repetitive reflection of the ray of light makes an infinite macro universe within a tiny micro box “CUMOS”, and the infinite universe appears in front of you when
looking through the loophole of the tiny box.
